Resolution approving with modifications the decision of the City Planning Commission on ULURP No. C 210422 ZMM, a Zoning Map amendment (L.U. No. 918).

 

By Council Members Salamanca, Jr. and Moya

 

WHEREAS, New York City Department of City Planning (DCP), filed an application pursuant to Sections 197-c and 201 of the New York City Charter for an amendment of the Zoning Map, Section Nos. 12a and 12c, changing from an M1-5A District to an M1-5/R7X District, changing from an M1-5B District to an M1-5/R7X District, changing from an M1-5A District to an M1-5/R9X District, changing from an M1-5B District to an M1-5/R9X District, changing from an M1-5A District to an M1-6/R10 District, changing from an M1-5B District to an M1-6/R10 District, establishing a Special SoHo-NoHo Mixed Use District (SNX), which in conjunction with the related action would facilitate land use changes for a 56-block area to implement the SoHo/NoHo Neighborhood Plan in Manhattan, Community District 2 (ULURP No. C 210422 ZMM) (the "Application");

 

WHEREAS the City Planning Commission filed with the Council on October 22, 2021 its decision dated October 20, 2021 (the "Decision") on the Application;

 

WHEREAS, the Application is related to application N 210423 ZRM (L.U. No. 919), a zoning text amendment to establish the Special SoHo-NoHo Mixed Use District in Zoning Resolution (ZR) Section 14-03 and establish a Mandatory Inclusionary Housing (MIH) area;

 

WHEREAS, the Decision is subject to review and action by the Council pursuant to Section 197-d of the City Charter;

 

WHEREAS, upon due notice, the Council held a public hearing on the Decision and Application on November 9, 2021;

 

WHEREAS, the Council has considered the land use and other policy issues relating to the Decision and Application; and

 

WHEREAS, the Council has considered the relevant environmental issues, including the Positive Declaration issued October 28, 2020 (CEQR No. 21DCP059M). Significant adverse impacts related to hazardous materials, air quality and noise would be avoided through the placement of (E) designations (E-619) on selected projected and potential development sites as specified in Chapters 10, 15 and 17, respectively of the Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS). The FEIS determined that the proposed actions would have identified significant adverse impacts, which along with proposed mitigation measures, are summarized in Chapter 21, “Mitigation” of the FEIS. The Council has also considered the Technical Memorandum dated_____;

 

RESOLVED:

 

Having considered the FEIS and Technical Memorandum with respect to the Decision and Application, the Council finds that:

                      

1.                     The FEIS meets the requirements of 6 N.Y.C.R.R. Part 617;

 

2.                     The environmental impacts disclosed in the FEIS were evaluated in relation to the social, economic, and other considerations associated with the actions that are set forth in this report; and

 

3.                     Consistent with social, economic, and other essential considerations from among the reasonable alternatives available, the action is one which avoids or minimizes adverse environmental impacts to the maximum extent practicable; and

                     

The Decision, together with the FEIS and Technical Memorandum constitute the written statement of facts, and of social, economic and other factors and standards that form the basis of this determination, pursuant to 6 N.Y.C.R.R. §617.11(d).

 

Pursuant to Sections 197-d and 200 of the City Charter and on the basis of the Decision and Application, and based on the environmental determination and consideration described in the report, C 210422 ZMM, incorporated by reference herein, and the record before the Council, the Council approves the Decision of the City Planning Commission with the following modifications:

 

Matter double struck out is old, deleted by the City Council;

Matter double-underlined is new, added by the City Council
